Myrna was born on Oct. 22, 1927 to Edgar and Pearl (Mickels) Price at Madrid, Neb., the youngest of six children.

Myrna and Robert worked side by side for many years operating a Grade A dairy, raising hogs and farming. They moved their family to Mirage Flats, south of Hay Springs, in 1970 where they continued to farm. Myrna worked at Pioneer Manor for 35 years before retiring when she was 80. She enjoyed painting ceramics, sewing, embroidering, crocheting, making cards that she stamped and Christmas candy. She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren and family dinners were always made special by her peanut butter pies, chocolate cake and other tasty dishes that she would make.
Myrna was preceded in death by her parents, four sisters and one brother, husband Robert, son Rickie, grandson Staff Sgt. Jason A. Fegler, and son-in-law Eugene Snyder. She is survived by 6 children, 16 grandchildren, and 26 great grandchildren.
